Gal Gadot and her husband Jaron Vasaro are set to produce a film adaption of controversial novel Borderlife alongside Keshet International.
Borderlife, (Eng. All the Rivers) written by international best selling author Dorit Rabinian, tells the story of a Jewish woman and Palestinian man who meet in New York and fall in love. It was published in 2014.
The book was initially banned by the Israeli education ministry from high school reading lists because of its depiction of a cross-cultural romance. The decision sparked protests and the novel was later allowed in advanced literature classes.
Gadot will produce through her Pilot Wave production company alongside Keshet International which is headed by Peter Traugott.
